January 2022

On January 13, the National Center for Education Evaluation (NCEE) in the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) issued a request for information (RFI) on interventions in middle school science and early math interventions for students with disabilities. Specifically, NCEE is seeking “(1) interventions that can improve middle grades students' science achievement, particularly among students in the lowest quartile of proficiency regardless of disability status; and (2) digital interventions that can improve the math proficiency of third to fifth grade students with or at risk of developing disabilities, with an emphasis on the domains of whole numbers, rational numbers, and fractions.”

The responses to the RFI will inform a set of learning acceleration challenges for which IES is planning to conduct prize competitions later this year. These opportunities will be supported through funding that IES received under the American Rescue Plan Act. IES Director Mark Schneider highlighted these forthcoming opportunities in a December 2021 blog post

Comments are due February 14 and can be submitted through regulations.gov. Responses should include the name and a description of the intervention, curricular focus, how the intervention focuses on improving the proficiency of diverse groups of students, accessibility for students with disabilities, and links to publicly available information on outcomes from the intervention.
